Suspect arrested for another shooting in Livingston Parish, deputies say
LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (WAFB) - Officials with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office are charging the shooting of an 8-year-old child to a man connected to multiple shootings back in early May.
According to Sheriff Jason Ard, LPSO detectives have linked Jaran Adams, 21, to two separate incidents of shots fired in the same location on Pardue Road in Springfield. The two shootings happened on May 9, and May 12.
Adams is being charged with assault of drive-by shooting, illegal use of weapons or dangerous instrumentalities, and attempted first-degree murder (3 counts).
